As a kid, I used to tape Casey Kasem's Top 40 countdown with a monoaural desktop casette player/recorder with the built-in mic.

I once got mad at my brother for coming in the room and talking while I was trying to capture that perfect "Disco Duck". Man, I was pissed the rest of the week.

I used to tape the NY beats from KPOO in Oakland. 2 hours on Sunday afternoons in about 1983. The first rap I'd ever heard. It was completely new and exciting.

First off, great info there, Monte, thank you for sharing.

Secondly, Back in the day before we had a VCR we used to use a tape deck with a built in mic to record movies and tv shows. Wow that was pointless...

I remember the first time we bought a little stereo with a built in cassette deck. We were recording off the radio and thought you had to be quiet or else you would get recorded haha. Those were the days.

Yes, the lost "fart tapes" would be most amusing.
